The study examined the learning-to-learn strategies of students with and without disabilities as they highlighted, took notes, planned, and wrote expository texts in social studies and science. Learning-to-learn skills are important to student reading and writing performance. To assess student performance, the study used assessment tools developed as part of the ACCelerating Expository Literacy (ACCEL) project to evaluate the strategic routines that students used to obtain, summarize, and represent key information in content-area text.
